Because a transgirl wanting to wear a dress is the same as you wanting to wear your cruddy basketball shorts.
Mississippi almost had it right this time. Almost.
A trans-female senior at South Panola High School in Mississippi bravely came out to her teachers and fellow students and started living her life as a female, including her wardrobe. The school was actually behind her (good job, South Panola!), but some of the students are crybabies and they want to wear sweatpants to school.
So they’re protesting. Because they want to wear sweatpants to school.
See? Adults don’t have the monopoly on assholey behavior.

Today in Mississippi: Prayer in Schools! (Maybe?)
Last week: Oops, we forgot to make slavery illegal here! My bad.
This week: Let’s try to sneak Jesus back into the school system.
Supporters say bills to guarantee religious freedom in Mississippi public schools are meant to ensure students can talk about spiritual beliefs and aren’t deprived of their rights.
…It’s clear that advocates for the measure, especially those outside the Legislature, believe it would clear the way for student-led prayer before groups.
“People ask me if this is a step toward getting prayer back in schools. I think this is THE step to get prayer back in schools,” said Paul Ott, who hosts religion-flavored radio and television programs about hunting, fishing and the outdoors.

Because that’s what Mississippi needs, more Jesus in the class room. Clearly the politicians there have their priorities in the right place, because students need to feel comfortable enough to spread their indoctrination to other impressionable minds who don’t have an overbearing fairy-tale-teller waiting at home for them. They must find a way to make it OK for public prayer in schools.

Slavery is finally illegal in Mississippi.
I’m so glad I can finally travel safely to The Magnolia State without fear of being sold to a cotton plantation.
Mississippi has officially ratified the 13th amendment to the US constitution, which abolishes slavery and which was officially noted in the constitution on 6 December 1865. All 50 states have now ratified the amendment.
Mississippi’s tardiness has been put down to an oversight that was only corrected after two academics embarked on research prompted by watching Lincoln, Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated film about president Abraham Lincoln’s efforts to secure the amendment.
Then again, they do still have the Confederacy big as day on their state flag, so maybe not.

Can we just delete Mississippi and Alabama?
I propose we just lump those two bastions of ignorance together, call it Missibama, and forget they exist.
I wouldn’t mind if the South tried to secede again to be honest. That whole place is on some whole other level of crazy, but Mississippi and Alabama are really doing big things right now.
- They want Santorum to be President.
- They don’t believe in interracial marriage.
- They think Obama is a muslim.
I didn’t make any of this up.
These are actual news stories from the past week. Like I said…can we just delete them? I can’t really think of any contributions they make to the country other than raising the median weight of the population and keeping diabetes statistics high.

Another day…another ‘Family Values’ Republican caught in some shit.
They are just intent on not doing right. Keep it in your pants, guys! What is you doing!
So far this year we have:
And now, Greg Davis. Look at this Mississippi fool:
Alright, let’s talk about this big queen.

Attention Black People: Stay the hell out of Mississippi.
And if you live there, save your pennies and find a way to get your black ass on up and away from that Twilight Zone of danger and despair. I’ve decided to not even fly over it anymore on the way to Desirable Places because I don’t want to tempt fate that some forcefield might recognize my blackness and send me hurtling towards the ground to become trapped in the Mississippi Void. I am convinced that black people in Mississippi only have three options: go to jail, get fat, or die at the hands of angry white people.
